Texas Instruments to build 2nd 300 mm analog chip fab for $3.1 billion in Richardson Texas

Dallas News reports that Texas Instruments has chosen Richardson as the site for a $3.1 billion semiconductor facility that's expected to create more than 488 jobs. The 870,000 square-foot plant will be built on W. Renner Road, between Custer Parkway and Alma Road. It will boost Texas Instruments' chip production for a broad range of uses, such as smartphones, connected cars, and industrial machinery. The company is already the biggest maker of analog semiconductors. Texas Instruments plans to produce its more cost-effective 300-millimeter wafers at the facility. Each wafer is cut into numerous analog chips. The 300-millimeter wafers can yield twice as many chips as the company's 200-millimeter product.
